of the most powerful voices of criticism of president obama when it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into the party. >> he can become a cable tv host. one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today, he's gone, over, history. it sounded like a valedictory. he was sort of going to recede, did it twice. tried, lost and there were a lot of people who recorded him as a transitional figure even when he was nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bayne capital, who knows? i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him broaden out? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a house member to get and that is nationwide recognition. he is also a bonafide brainiac with budget things. you may not agree with what he likes to do with the budget, but he understand. so there is still a place for him there. he
over among foreign policy experts? >> well, i think-- i mean, it's-- i think you have john kerry, or you have susan rice. and i think either one of them could be nominated and probably the foreign policy establishment would say that's fine. john kerry probably has more, but susan rice has served as u.n. ambassador and she's got know a lot of foreign experience, certain, from that experience. she's been at the state department bore, too. i mean, her history is in foreign policy. she hasn't opinion secretary of state. he hasn't been on the hill in the capacity john kerry is, but she certainly is experienced. >> reporter: the aforementioned general petraeus, a story that continues to rock this town. the president talked about it at the press conference, said it was a sad personal saga. actually said very nice things about david petraeus' contributions to his country, and also said-- i'm not sure the exact word he used-- but basically no top vent intelligen was revealed. >> i think he made a point of saying so far. and so far, there is not any negative effect on national security. bu
it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into this party at this point. >> he can become a cable tv host. >> who knows. >> with one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today -- >> he's gone, he's over, history. it w it sounded like a valedictory. he didn't talk about our cause will live, we're going to continue to fight in the future. it was sort of like he was going to recede, he had done it twice, he lost. there are a lot of people who regarded him as the transitional figurine when he was the nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bain capital, who knows. i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? he's long been considered one of the rising stars of the republican congress. will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him try to broaden out, claim the mantle of the party standard bearer? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a hou
party would be fiscally conservative on foreign policy and military policy. and on social issues, we would be libertarian, we're going to say, we're going to stay out of your pocketbook and bedroom. and that party could be a majority party. >> people said -- >> sorry. go ahead. >> i think if we were running that way this time, we win by 4% or 5%. >> what about the tea party? there are people who say the tea party wanted pure candidates, i put that in quotes. your party lost some unlosable races, they may have cost republicans control of the senate. a lot of republicans have trouble bringing this issue up. >> i think what we really should try to do with the tea party, get them to figure out what are your priority issues? the whole reason they got established, was big government, heavy taxes, obama care, government trying to direct your life and allow a certain amount of flexibility on social issues. conservatism on foreign policy and allow people to disagree with each other, sort of in the ronald reagan mold, if you agree with me on eight out of ten issues you are my friend. somehow w
. we have so many important issues ahead of us in american foreign policy from the war to iran to north korea to global economic crisis to the euro debt crisis the arab revolutions to securing our embassies. one thing we haven't talked about, i hope that congress will fully fund embassy security. that's been lost in this debate about benghazi. the real issues to me are, how do we strengthen security at embassies, how do we republicans and democrats to give full funding to secure embassies and consoulates and how do we go after the terrorist group in libya that killed ambassador stevens and his colleagues? it's a partisan time in our country, unfortunately. >> thanks very much, nick burns. next, israel's ambassador to the u.s., michael oren joining us.

of national security, foreign policy. one question in particular got a rise out of him about his u.n. ambassador, susan rice. in his first full press conference since march, president obama was asked about the criticism of u.s. ambassador susan rice, his likely choice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: rice has come under fire from some republicans for initially stating in television interviews that the september attack on an american consulate in libya appeared to be the result of a spontaneous demonstration. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: and that's just what senator john mccain did a short time later. he has been one of rice's fiercest critics. >> first and foremost, the president of the united states, the commander in chief is the most responsible. and i hop
nation's foreign policy. schumer and graham talking their idea today. it includes a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the united states. >> deportation is not going to work. fix it in a way we don't have a third wave of illegal immigration 20-years from now. that is what americans want they want to fix illegal immigration after all. they will do nothing until you secure the border be identified start paying taxes pay a fine for the law they broke. they can't stay unless they learn their language and they have to get in the back of the line. >> senator graham and i have talked and we are resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago. we are putting together a comprehensive detail blue print on immigration reform. it had the real potential for bipartisan support based on the theory that most americans are for legal immigration very much against illegal immigration. >> they are developing a document to make sure they are hiring them to work in the country. >> the death toll rising from a strong earthquake. 12 people killed.
to get weapons of mass destruction. >> so the graham rule is it's okay for highly placed foreign policy players in an administration to be wrong about something they say on tv involving intelligence as long as other people are wrong, too, especially people in other countries. in his nakedly political and entirely dishonorable prosecution of susan rice today, john mccain actually said this -- >> we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. >> he obviously meant to add except condoleezza rice and anyone in any republican administration. we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. really? from the guy who said this -- >> that old beach boy song bomb iran, bomb, bomb, bomb -- anyway. >> yeah, anyway. we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. john mccain responsible for what we say and what we do? the guy who was trying to get sarah palin important is in as vice president of the united states, a heart beat away from the presidency. john mccain did that. it was the greatest act of sheer irresponsibility i have ever seen in a presidential candidate. here is somet
in foreign policy. >> the governor brings up a good point, this is traditionally not something the president has to fight over. the president yesterday said, look, the election's over. almost as a precursor to, we need to get past this. this seems to be a way for frustrated republicans to wield some power over a choice that should be the president's to make. >> sure. you should be allowed traditionally to appoint your own team, right? there's a sort of conspiracy theory out there that they want to make susan rice unqualifiable or unqualified for the position so they can appoint john kerry which opens up the senate seat to mass, let's deal with that later. the question for the governor. you affirm the intelligence assessments read on the sunday shows were wrong. and i think it's fair and obvious that the intelligence leading up to the attack was wrong and missed the attack. so can you talk about what type of massive or maybe not so massive intelligence failure occurred on the president's watch and what can be done to actually fix that? >> look, what the president has said and what is going on
said blame the video? obama ran with the foreign policy from years of community organizing. in chicago we learn value of phony outrage. >> let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she made an appearance at the request of the white house where she gave her best understanding of the intelligence provided to her. if senator mccain and graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, bemichelle her reputation -- besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> greg: what is going on here? and rage over criticism of benghazi sparks th spark -- exce rage of benghazi. it's kind of sexist. the juvenile bravado that scared the npr correspondent. outraged that he is picking on her. he doesn't think she can take care of herself. what he offered the same protection to male ambassador? see benghazi. is his anger legitimate? >> andrea: no. >> greg: no? >> andrea: let me think about that. no. he
part of the 20th century would bring us a major financial crisis and engulf us in a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security. to achieve these goals i thought the government would have had to shrink in size and scope, reduce spending, change the monetary system, and reject the unsustainable cost of policing the world and expanding the american empire. the problems seemed to be overwhelming and impossible to solve, yet from my viewpoint, just following the constraints based on the federal government by the constitution would have been a good place to start. just how much did i accomplish? in more ways according to conventional viss wisdom my off and on career in congress from 1976 to 2012, accomplished very little. no named legislation, no named federal buildings or highways, thank goodness. in spite of my efforts the government has grown exponentially, taxes remain excessive, and a prolific increase of incomprehensible regulations continues. wars are constant, and pursued without congressional declaration, deficits rise to the sky, poverty is ramp
a successful foreign policy that was supposedly from the beginning his weakness, but which has turned out to be one of his real strengths. so, unfortunately, all of this -- this commitment to our patriotic togetherness and unity that we will govern this country across the aisles with bipartisan attention is being foiled, input president obama showed, as you said, rare, if you will, anger, a flash of real support for susan rice, and indicating he's up to the battle. that should he choose her to become part of his cabinet, he will put her forth with the full expectation that she will be vented in the ways she should be -- vetted, excuse me, in the way she should be without that rancor. you can be assure, the rancor will be following if she's nominated. this po >> lynn, you were there in the east room when the president was speaking. can you recall him being so intense, so passionate about an issue as he was then? >> that was a special moment, being in the room, you could feel the intensity. i was sitting a few feet from him. you could -- you could -- that steely gaze that he really was sett

especially in foreign policy. i know susan rice. i've known her a long time. she's honorable, experienced, dedicated. and i got those intelligence briefs in the morning whenever we were dealing with the crisis. >> when you were u.n. ambassador? >> when i was u.n. ambassador. you act and say what your intelligence briefing said at the time. but then those intelligence briefings change because there's an ongoing investigation of what happened in benghazi. >> she went on the five sunday talk shows five days or so after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans. and what she said was not accurate. but she insists she was just repeating what she had been briefed by the intelligence community. >> that's the information she had. and i think just apart from that, wolf, a president should have the right to nominate who he wants for secretary of state. >> but the senate has the right to confirm or reject, right? >> i know. but the candidates if it's senator kerry, susan rice, ambassador rice, two excellent candidates, i mean, i don't thin
